안녕하세요 English with Yoo! 의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.

English with Yoo! 는 일상생활에서 자주 쓰이는 다양한 표현들을 익히는 시간입니다.

I’ll give you a daily introduction to some meaningful and useful everyday English words and phrases! So let’s get started today!
오늘의 영어 표현은: Full plate / to have a full plate입니다.

Have you ever had one of those days when you have so many things to do or complete but so little time?

여행을 가면 보고 싶고, 가보고 싶은 곳은 많은데 시간은 한정돼 있어서 안타까울 때가 많이 있는데요, 친구들과 DC를 방문한 Jackson도 하루 동안 DC를 다 구경하기 위해 바쁘게 움직이고 있더라구요.

그럼 먼저 제가 Jackson과 나눈 대화를 들어보시겠습니다.

Today’s phrase is full plate / to have a full plate. Listen carefully!

Full plate / to have a full plate
Jen: You’re here with your friends and it seems like you have a really full plate on you today?
Jackson: Yeah! We’re going to go to the Air and Space Museum and ride the flight stimulators and now we’re going to get lunch and then later we’re going to the mall.
Jen: So, no time for you to really rest. It’s just back to back huh?
Jackson: Yeah!
Jen: How many friends do you guys have with you? One, two, three, four, five…
Jackson: There are 80 people, so…
Jen: Wow! That’s cool. Have fun guys! Bye~!
Jackson & Friends: Thank you! Bye.

친구들과 DC를 방문한 Jackson, 가보고 싶은 곳을 모두 방문하기 위해 굉장히 분주해 보였는데요, 그래서 제가 ‘…it seems like you have a really full plate on you today? 라고 했습니다. ‘친구들과 여행을 왔나본데, 일정이 굉장히 빡빡한가 봐요. 굉장히 바빠보여요!’ 라는 말이죠!

그랬더니, Jackson은 항공우주 박물관을 갔다가 점심을 먹은 후 백화점을 가야하는 등 일정히 굉장히 빡빡하다고 하더라구요. 그래서 제가 “So, no time for you to really rest. It’s just back to back huh?” 라고 했습니다. “쉴 시간은 없겠네요. 정말 일정이 빡빡하네요.” 라는 말이죠.

오늘의 영어 표현 ‘full plate / to have a full plate 인데요, full plate means that you have a full schedule, have a lot to do and to be busy.

Full plate / to have a full plate 는 ‘매우 바쁘다, 스케줄이 꽉 차 있다’ 라는 뜻입니다.
Plate, P L A T E 는 접시인데요, 그래서 full plate / to have a full plate, 는 말그대로 하면 ‘접시가 음식등으로 꽉 찬’ 이란 말인데요, ‘일정이 매우 빡빡하거나, 할 일이 굉장히 많은 상황’을 나타낼 때 영어로 ‘Full plate’, 또는 ‘to have a full plate’ 라고 합니다.
그럼 여기서 오늘의 대화를 다시 한번 들어보시겠습니다.

Full plate / to have a full plate
Jen: You’re here with your friends and it seems like you have a really full plate on you today?
Jackson: Yeah! We’re going to go to the Air and Space Museum and ride the flight stimulators and now we’re going to get lunch and then later we’re going to the mall.

Jackson & Friends: Thank you! Bye.

Now let me give you an example sentence in Korean and try to say it in English.

오늘 회사 일도 너무 많고, 집에서 할 일도 많아서 도와줄 수 없을 것 같아.
그렇죠! I’m afraid I can’t help you today. I’m very busy at work, and I’ve got a full plate at home too.

오늘의 영어표현 full plate / to have a full plate ‘매우 바쁘다, 일정이 빡빡하다, 스케줄이 꽉 차 있다’이라는 뜻의 full plate / to have a full plate 꼭 기억해두세요!
